Clients sometimes see old versions of NFS files
Last modified: 2011-12-08 10:34:55 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora 7 clients sometimes see old versions of NFS files served from a RHEL 4
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On the RHEL side we currently have kernel 2.6.9-67.0.1.ELsmp and
nfs-utils-1.0.6-84.EL4. On the Fedora 7 side, we have 126.96.36.199-80.fc7 and
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Modify file in nfs directory on one Fedora 7 client.
2. Log in to another Fedora 7 client and check file.
The old version of the file will sometimes be present on the second client.
The file should be at the new version.
Hmm, not a lot of info here. Cache consistency is generally the purview of the client. The server just sends the info the client requests. The client decides whether and how to that info. Is this still reproducible on more modern clients?
